Project started in Summer of 2015, inished in the winter. I started riding it every day about 3 months ago.
The donor bike was a 2001 S40 with 10,000 miles. It was stripped and rebuilt around the Ryca kit. I have about $6500 into this thing. I ride it daily, ut I'm looking for a bigger, ore touring-oriented bike at this point.The bike is beautiful, ut it is also based on a 15 year old donor bike, o it has the usual wear and tear (never dropped, ho). Additionally, he paint on the front of the tank isn't absolutely perfect - I had to use some Bondo to smooth over the welds that Ryca does in the gas tank (part of the kit) and my Bondo skills weren't perfect. It's not particularly visible (it's on the front, ownward slope of the tank, sually obscured by the handlebars). Some sanding and touch-up would probably fix it. Photo included below.
I have matching automotive paint in rattle cans.
Tank has been epoxied inside with Red Kote.
Belt is in great shape.
Turn signals work.
Rebuilt carb with new slide/diaphragm
New cables (brakes, lutch
)New headlight and housing
New Battery
New suspension -front/rear
New tires
Upgraded front stainless brake line, ew brake pads front/rear
Tons of cool parts available from Ryca Motors website
I just added a muffler insert b/c the thing was just TOO loud without it. It still sounds awesome.
The header pipe is wrapped in some of my photos - it is not currently wrapped, hough. I liked the way it looked with black wrapping, ut the black dye started to fade and it looked bad, o I took it off.
